SUKKUR: Opposition Leader in the National Assembly Syed Khursheed Shah said on Saturday that Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif is unable to give an explanation to the Joint Investigation Team (JIT), hence he is attacking national institutions and the PPP.
Speaking to journalists in Sukkur, Shah said the JIT probing the assets of the Sharif family is not controversial, however, the PML-N is trying to make it controversial.
“No one is pulling strings however its true that the Sharif brothers are shaking,” he said and added that the prime minister is under fire due to his own words.
Shah also said that Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) Chairman Imran Khan also has pending cases against him.
Earlier, Punjab Chief Minister Shehbaz Sharif on Saturday appeared before the JIT.
Shehbaz Sharif is the fourth member of the Sharif family to appear before the probing team – constituted by the Supreme Court.
I have recorded my statement," he told journalists before adding that "two days earlier the prime minister appeared before this JIT and it was for the first time that an elected prime minister appeared before a JIT to present his stance."
"Today perhaps this is for the first time in history that a chief minister has appeared before JIT," Shehbaz told journalists.
Former interior minister Senator Rehman Malik is also scheduled to appear before the JIT on June 23.
